If you’re newly engaged, you’re probably still reeling in the excitement. All it takes is a glance at the ring on your left hand to hit play on #allthefeels and a running list of #allthethings you get to start picking out and get organized.

I’m a firm believer that we shouldn’t need an excuse to throw a party or celebrate with friends, but I also believe that if we have a reason to do so, we should jump on it and let the celebrations begin.

Your engagement is the perfect reason to get those nearest and dearest to you together and to start your engagement and wedding journey out right.

In the Age of Social Media, a Party with Close Friends Still Beats 1,000 Likes and Comments

So, if you know you want to throw an engagement party – or at the very least send out an engagement announcement – now comes the more difficult task of picking which invitation to choose.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a custom invitation designed for your wedding? Or to work with a designer who could then walk with you through the design of your wedding invitations and wedding stationery?

Many brides-to-be stumble upon big name DIY design sites and end up going that route, because they aren’t sure how much it costs to work personally with a designer or because they feel like the process will be easier.

Many are shocked to learn that the process of working one-on-one with a designer is not only efficient and easy, it’s also more beneficial in terms of getting the design integrity, paper quality, and one-of-a-kind look most brides-to-be really want.

If you’re a bride-to-be who:

--  Knows she wants all of her wedding stationery—from the engagement announcement to save the dates to the wedding invites to the programs to match and complement one another

--  Loves one-of-a-kind designs that aren’t cooking cutter

--  Would love all the benefits of working with a designer for stationery       – and even signs – for your wedding….

I’d love to help you create an engagement announcement or engagement party invite and then talk about the rest of your wedding stationery ideas.
